lyrics

Let’s sail on the water
And don’t forget that wine
Let’s sail on the water
And we’ll forget the time

When nightshade falls
The stars appear
And tell us what they know
Let’s sail on the water
And get lost in the flow

Then we can sing
The Egyptian Swing
And dance a little too

Let’s slide on the sunlight
Have you ever caught a ray?
Let’s slide on the sunlight
It can last all through the day

When morning comes
The dragonflies
Will weave a song to play
Let’s slide on the sunlight
Before it fades away

When the dewdrops dry
You shouldn’t cry
‘Cause your tears might vanish too

Let’s sleep in the meadow
With flowers in our hair
Let’s sleep in the meadow
There’s plenty room to share

The wind will change the colors
And the moon will fill the sky
Let’s sleep in the meadow
And rest all through the night

I can dream of you and you can dream of me
And we can hold each other tight
Yes I can dream of you and you can dream of me
And we can hold each other tight

about

Cutleri Brooklyn, New York

An eclectic, avant-garde approach to traditional folk, combining three-part harmony with unconventional instrumentation accented by otherworldly, abrasive violin licks and slippery, psychedelic clarinet lines, all underpinned by a banjo sound that can be melodious and soothing one moment and percussive and arrhythmic the next.

Fork: Jessie Shaffer
Knife: Heidi Harris
Spoon: Christen Napier
